Scouting Will Reilly, North York (OJHL) – 2015 NHL Draft

Will Reilly is another intriguing name to add to the watch list for the 2015 NHL Entry Draft.

The Toronto, Ontario native has stayed below the radar thus far having gone undrafted by the OHL in his minor midget year. Reilly is currently debuting in the OJHL with the North York Rangers, after spending last season playing varsity hockey at Upper Canada College - a private school for boys.

Reilly is a talented puckmoving defenceman who should garner some draft interest especially given the NHL's heightened emphasis on possession and puck control.

An athletic, skilled rearguard making his debut in the OJHL this year with the North York Rangers .. a talented puck carrier, driven by a fast change of pace .. thrives when operating at a feverish tempo, proactively spearheading the rush or supporting the attack .. possesses excellent passing and shooting skills, and continues to mature as a puckmover, developing better patience and improving the quality of his decisions .. still prone to rash giveaways and blind clearances, yet the progression is there .. still working on developing his defensive structure .. needs to work on his angles and positioning, learning to back up and stay square when defending the rush .. tends to get impatient and gets drawn out of his lanes .. more than willing to inject himself into physical battles, yet will need to continue to add strength and mass to a tall yet lean frame .. a player who intrigues due to his progression over the past 18 months .. might just be still scratching the surface on his long-term potential .. courted by Ontario Hockey League teams yet is expected to explore the U.S. collegiate NCAA route, which should give him more time to realize his impressive potential .. a rookie on the North York blue line, Reilly is expected to log quality minutes with the program, aiding in the power play and continuing to develop the defensive side of his game.
